But we do rewrite what John 3:16 says. It says "For God so loved the world . . .", but we rewrite it to mean "For God so loved "humans" . . .", right? Even though it says "world", we assume He is not talking about the physical earth, or the trees, or the frogs, right? So, we say that in John 3:16, the word "world" really means "humans". My point is this. There are some who say that in Genesis 1, the word "day" really could literally mean "a period of time". I think we have to be careful not to make double standards in order to fit our own preferred world view. Scripture is to inform our world view, not the other way around. My second point is this. I think we could learn a lot from each other if we recognize that none of us has a perfect theology or perfect doctrine. And we need to allow the Holy Spirit to do His work in our minds and hearts to change them however He desires. Therefore, we need to respect and listen and continue to talk to people who sincerely claim to be born again Christians, but have a different perspective on items not relating to our salvation and how one gets saved.
